Programme notes:

As the title suggests, the basic inspiration for the piece comes from the melismatic style of medieval plainsong and the later organum effect of melodic lines moving in parallel fourths and fifths.  This is created with the flute by singing and playing at the same time.  In addition, through careful control of the air column it is also possible to simultaneously produce two notes which are an octave apart.  These and several less common contemporary effects are woven into the texture of the piece in as natural a manner as possible.

Performance duration (approx): 6'00

Difficulty guide: 8-9
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
